The X195 and X197 are suitable for security, process control and general industrial signalling applications. These beacons are of the Flashing mode type (single stage alarm) Xenon beacons (sometimes called strobes) are controlled via a PCB and put out a very brief but bright flash of white light by ionizing and then discharging a large current through the xenon gas. The design allows for termination inside the enclosure. The X195 deep base version offers 2 x M20 side knockouts and 1 x M20 rear. The shallow base (low profile version) allows for cable entry of up to 5mm on the side of the unit (x2) and 1 x M20 knockout at the rear. The X197 high power version only allows for internal connection via the M20 rear knockout. Due to the power rating the unit has a rated ’On’ time of 2 hours in any six (see technical data sheet).
